Mr. T's Valentines Gift

That's right, ladies. Sweet little ole Lil worked up her courage last Saturday and vamped it up in my very own Valen-tease boudoir session, shot by the super fabulous Noelle McCoy of McCoy Made. And can I just say she might be my new best friend. She is the sweetest thing EVER.

I really can't believe I got the gonads to do the shoot, but she made it so very comfortable and classy, and has the studio right in her beautiful home. I've been talking about wanting to do a shoot like this forever, and actually planned to do it before the wedding, but with the craziness of those last few weeks coupled with the holidays, I decided it would be much better to pose for a Valentines Day session instead. Lo and behold, she offered a special session (postponed twice because of the blizzard - talk about anticipation!) just in time. And can I just say that I. Had. A. BALL! Seriously, it was too much fun, and I highly suggest all you lovely brides-to-be, newlyweds, whatever - treat yourself to this because you will be SO glad you did one day! We didn't work on those wedding day bodies for nothing, right?

So obviously I won't be showing any of the photos, but just know that I am so very pleased with how they turned out. I didn't even recognize myself! I pick up my little black book album today at noon, and plan to give it to Mr. T tonight. I can't wait to see his reaction! He's going to freak!

We're headed to the Black Eyed Peas tonight (love you, Lindsey, for the hookup on the tickets) and to see Jim Brickman at the Symphony tomorrow (love you, Nashville Symphony, for being a client of Craig's and finding tickets to the sold out show!) so this is going to be one F.U.N. V-Day weekend. The Symphony is becoming our new tradition - we went to see Itzhak Perlman play on Valentines Day last year, and it was amazing. So much fun getting all dolled up too. I'm thinking I'm going to bust out my fur stole, just because. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy and happy.

As you can see here. :)

And here...

And definitely here...

Hope you all have the happiest of Valentines Days! My first as a married woman - woo hoo!!!


  1. Oh my gosh, I have been wanting to do that for SOOOO long! I actually wanted to do that for a wedding present too, but like you said it just didn't happen with everything else going on. I was thinking of doing it for his birthday in May....I knew Dove did it but had not heard McCoy did....I will have to look into it! Such a fun present that they would never expect! :)

    Have a fabulous weekend & Happy Valentines Day!!!
